Scope/Content: Abstract: The 10-ft tall Simkins Dam, constructed in the early 1900s, is located at approximately River Mile (RM) 12 on the Patapsco River near Ellicott City, Maryland; the 26-ft tall Bloede Dam was constructed in 1907 and is located less then 1 mile downstream of Simkins Dam (at approximately RM 11.3). Both dams are currently under consideration for removal. Simkins Dam is expected to be removed in the summer or fall of 2010, and Bloede Dam is expected to be removed at a later date. This technical report provides sediment transport modeling results for the proposed removal of both dams, predicting the erosion of reservoir sediment, sediment deposition downstream, and the magnitude and duration of increased suspended sediment concentration due to the release of reservoir deposits following dam removal. Scope/Content: Height: 10 feet. Scope/Content: Date constructed: 1907. Date removed: 2010.
